So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

an entry not about Brett, but for him nonetheless
Friday. 12.31.04 12:23 am
so I was talking about how whenever you think something will happen, it doesn't. So then I had myself completely convinced that since I had thought of some particular thing, it absolutely meant that it couldn't happen. However, being so completely convinced that it wouldn't happen under these circumstances, the only way for me to be once again caught by surprise is if it did happen. Which it did. I'm not complaining, but life really likes to play games with me. Don't you, Life?!? grrArgh!
set THAT one down for ambiguity, BRETT! ha-HA! Put that in your vaguery pipe and smoke it!

The circling dragons murmured with excitement and came to roost on the cave's edge. The lone cormorant fluttered vainly towards the cliff's summit, dropped ten feet, paused, and then plummeted haphazardly the thousand feet into the sea.
Ah, my life

YOU ARE AIR!

The trees are in their autumn beauty,
The woodland paths are dry....
I really like this poem and the reason why is something that a fellow in my English class pointed out one day- that there are nine and fifty swans. That means, when they paddle, lover by lover in the cold... there is an odd number of swans and one must paddle by itself....

The taxi-calling man had the best Thanksgiving anyone could ever have, he said. He was tired but every time he tried to fall asleep the delicious smells of his wife's cooking filled his nostrils and he woke up again to say, "That smells GOOOoooOod, honey!" and she would respond, "It ain't cooked nothing but the bread yet!"
On Friday he went out and bought her a dozen roses because he said that was the best meal he ever did eat.
Tibetan Singing Bowls
Sunday. 10.24.04 4:36 am
Kristina and I went to a choir performance on Friday, it was quite moving, in a mystical way. All the words were unintelligible, and some of the singing was more like overlapping sounds rather than singing at all. The choir was like a chorus of Tibetan Singing Bowls, and I found I did not like watching them, I would rather imagine the sound emanating from the stage without a driving force. I watched instead, with an unfocused gaze, the beautiful, skeletal woman- the conductor- waving her pale, fragile arms and shaking fingers as if she were a trembling, falling leaf in a strange, slow, warm-colored autumnal dream.
